"We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this.  As citizens, thats a job for all of us.  Thats the way to honor Trayvon Martin."[RELATED: ]

The statement shed little light on whether the Justice Department willagainst Zimmerman. But the department released a statement shortly after the president's comments saying that it was actively weighing whether to do so.

"Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the Department's policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial," the Justice Department said.

In March 2012, the president had famously urged Americans to come together and do some "soul searching" about Martin's slaying and underlined that "."
